  • The reporting tools work very well and can be customized.
  • Desktop Central works very well with deploying software and the packages can be customized,
  • The remote connection tool requires very little interaction from the end user to establish a connection.
  • To integrate with more manufacturers of PC's in order to pull warranty expiry dates.
It is fantastic tool for managing desktops, laptops, and servers. I do not recommend for managing smart phones or iPads.

The current use for Desktop Central 9/10 is for user and machine management. It has been great for full access and control of our company's assets. [It's] good for pushing out patches and various updates. There have been some issues when connecting to user machines outside the domain.
  • Excellent at patch updates.
  • Remote software installs.
  • Assets recovery.
  • Not always reliable remote control. Although it has been better with the update from Desktop Central 9 to Desktop Central 10 but still needs more work.
Once again great for policy and remote software deployment.. the days of pushing scripts may be long over.
